New Cow-ture for Spring!

You know, I'm guessing this photo doesn't need much said about it.
I was met by Lizzie the gate.............

Widdle Wamb News-
My first try at working out a pattern for a geometric tapestry crochet sheep.
Some bugs yet to work out but I think it will make a pretty blanket done in squares.

Last winter I worked out the goat pattern.
I'm really quite taken with tapestry crochet.

But somehow, I don't think any of that beats walking around, cool as a cucumber,
with a fence panel 'round your neck!

Have a fun and creative day, my luvs!

Happy Birthday, dear Dar-la.........
Happy Birthday......
to youuuuuuuuuu!

Miss Darla Rose Caprine
 turned One Year Old on January 4, 2012.
Considering Farmer (fortuitously) found her, splayed and cold on the ground
with no birth mother in sight, and no one really though she'd make it, I'd
say she's looking pretty good!

Then, you know the rest.

We went all out for the party and spared no expense.
We hired a top notch decorating crew!

Darla got a brand new barn coat!  I think pink and white lace will be PERFECT
for this muddy weather we're having, don't you?

(mostly) Everyone joined in the fun and wore a hat!

Lizzie, of course.......

Miss Sadie

Little Girl, who is always being yelled at by her Maa to "be careful!"

Lizzie's Moo-ma, Red

And even Gypsy Killer Pony who said that he would come to the party
but he would kill us later.

Then we lined up to play Pin the Tail on the Cow

And Bob for Apples!

Everybody had a WONDERFUL time!

Happy, Happy Birthday my wee monkey......
I love you soooooo much!
xox  ~Maamaa
ps.  There was supposed to be apple cinnamon rice cake......
but you might want to ask Lizzie why there wasn't..............

There is no doubt in my mind......I have the very BEST friends in the whole wide world!

Look what I opened this day from my Gypsy Sistah, the lovely Seika!

I laughed so hard I nearly pee'd my pants!  It was as though she made this card ESPECIALLY for me!

It's still getting passed around at work!   It's the GEM of the day!

Thanks, my lovely, Gypsy're the BEST!
(and I wish I had been there, too!)   xo

Big Gypsy Goatie Blessings!
(aka:  Violca Mirola, Sea Gypsy)

Time to play:  WHAT'S IN THE BOX!

Last week, my lovely goatie friend Betty, from Apache Landing Fainters and her darling of darlings, Angel Baby, sent me a MOST mysterious package!  It weighed 16 pounds!  Really!

Let's open it!

FABRIC!  Lots and lots of fabric!
And.....what AB calls a purple 'see through toga'.......
It will look so magical hanging in my gypsy tent!

And what's this....?
FUN THINGS!  Lots and lots of them!
What do YOU see?

And books!  Two coloring books made especially for goatie lovers by AB's Maaa!
And a beautiful, old Victorian Style book.....just the kind of thing I love!
Oh, and I see the Empress Chachina!  She's so beautiful!
AB says:  "Talk to the Hoof."
AB likes to cause "mayhems."

A bag of bees!  Lots and lots of bees!
I'm going to keep them at my desk at work and hand one out to all the people that come to my
counter to make them happy!

But wait!  There's more!
Jewels and jewels and jewels fell out like from a PIRATE CHEST!
(I think AB might be a pirate goat!)
They are for me to use on all my hats and muffs and creations to make them sparkle!
And some were in a vintage evening purse!  You know how I love vintage purses!
Can you believe all those jewels????

And, as I mentioned before, the most precious of all......
AB's "Dead Mouse!"

I started this goatie blog one year ago today and I have met so many, many wonderful friends-AB and her Maa among them!  I look forward to sharing with these Kindred Spirits throughout the coming year. And I promise to always, always honor your cherished possessions.  You humble me with your generosity.
The Sisterhood of the Goat is an awesome thing!

Much love and a Happy New Year!

Ps.  And you're right, Angel Baby.............

And I love you, too!
